Bear Island – Matthew Cordell



A picture book about healing after a bereavement, the death of a loved one or a family pet, by Caldecott Medallist Matthew Cordell.

‘In a story that respects grief’s slow pace, Cordell’s writing and artwork together carry grace and heart.’ – Publishers Weekly, starred review.

‘Cordell speaks eloquently and respectfully to the universal experience of loss and recovery.’ – New York Times.

Louise and her family are sad after their beloved dog Charlie dies. “Life will not be the same,” Louise says, as she visits a little island that Charlie loved.

But on the island, something strange happens: she meets a bear who teaches her that getting over a bereavement takes time and that sometimes, things can change for the better.
